bulletin. i'm patchari raksawong in bangkok. >>> a typhoon is causing havoc over the philippines. rachel ferguson has an update on that. rachel, what's the latest? >> hi, there. typhoon bopha made landfall in mindanao earlier this morning. it will continue its path towards the north and the west. at the moment, it was a weaker system than it was when it made landfall but still a potent storm, this one with wind speeds now sustained at 126 kilometers per hour, wind gusts at 180. it's moving at 30 kilometers per hour. that's going to be helpful. it's quite a decent clip for a storm like this. so it means that heavy rain is not going to be hanging around, targeting one place, but it is going to be moving fairly quickly. if we take a look at the next 72-hour rainfall accumulation, the heaviest rain is falling over water. that said, the system is pulling in a lot of moisture still across the eastern seaboard, so we'll see ongoing heavy rain for the next couple of days and certainly a flood risk continuing into the weekend. elsewhere across eastern asia, fairly quiet on the continent. but we h
parts of japan. rachel ferguson here with details on that. rachel. >> yes, it is snowing. it will continue to snow into tuesday. let's show you some of the accumulations so far. you'll notice that most of the snow is focused along the sea of japan side of the country. sea-affect snow. have you heard of lake-effect snow. similar thing. basically same idea. winds come across from the northwest. pick up the moisture off the sea of japan and dump it along the western edge of the country. more than a meter has accumulated in some places. in the blue here in brackets, you can see the average for december. and we're already well exceeding that in many places across the country. into the next 24 hours, still likely to see an additional 60 to 70 centimeters in the blue. in the pink along the western edge, you could see up to 80 centimeters of additional snowfall. skiers and snowboarder will be happy, but up toward the north, we're seeing really strong winds. buffeting all the snowfall around and will make for some potentially dangerous travel. so be very careful if you have to go
the philippines. rachel ferguson has the latest in weather. rachel? >> hi there, yes, indeed. bopha left destruction in palau, now it's heading to the philippines where it's expected to make landfall on tuesday morning as a typhoon. so maintaining strength right now. in fact, the winds right now are sustained at 180 kilometers per hour with gusts exceeding 250 kilometers per hour. so high waves as well as storm surge are going to be major concerns. in addition to the flooding that could occur from the storm surge, there will be plenty of rain, as well. in fact, as much as 180, maybe 200 millimeters anywhere you're seeing popping up in the red here when all is said and done from this storm. so we'll be tracking it as it goes. certainly enough rain to cause considerable flooding. we know that already transport has been shut down and people are -- in transit have been stranded for the people being will just have to just wait out the storm see what happens with this one. we'll be keeping you updated. as we head to the bigger picture here in eastern asia, quite quiet, but japan has not one bu
. caller: exactly. >> bill: i hadn't thought about that. yeah. rachel down in nashville, tennessee, hey rachel good morning. caller: bill we talked before about the 47%. can you please tell me why we don't just call their bluff? they are always talking about the job creators. all we have to do so, bi, is say, fine. you want all of this on your dividends, you crate a job, you get a tax break. >> bill: makes sense to me. it's the whole idea that people like, you know, donald trump and sheldon adelson and the koch brothers are the job creators right? it's total nonsense. all they do with that money, that extra tax cut they get is they squirrel it away buy another vacation house or another yacht or another corporate jet. it's not going into creating jobs or investing in america. >> why don't we call their bluff? >> bill: well, you know, we are trying to this morning, here, rachel. some others are, too. but here is with a i would say. i wish president obama would do what we are doing this morning and call out john boehner and just identify him as the villai
the typhoon that hit the philippines is taking a toll. rachel ferguson is here with the details. >> hi. yes. bopha is now located to the west of the philippines, having moved across the islands. it's still a typhoon, so still a very potent system. winds are sustained at 126 with gusts at 180. so it hasn't changed much recently. it's heading up to the south china sea where it's likely to linger for the next couple of days. its very difficult to see what this storm is going to do, but we will keep a close eye on it. it's still a very powerful system. across the north you're seeing heavy rain continue here. this is because the system is pulling in moisture from the north. but down to the south where the devastation occurred, it is going to be a lot drier, and certainly the winds have died down. so that's good news for the rescue and recovery effort that will be continuing through the next few days. there's another low pressure system headed up it. it will be bringing more snow and really strong winds. winds gusting up to 160 miles per hour. so certainly travel will be dangerous. down towards t
with censorship. nhk world, beijing. >>> heavy snow causing havoc in various parts of japan. rachel is here with the weather. >> we've been looking at above average snowfall through december for much of japan. current snow depths, just below, we have the average snowfall for the month of december. so up toward hokkaido, about 30 centimeters, already 125 have fallen. more than that has already fallen. so the current snow depth is 125 centimeters. we nearly have a stack of two meters here in central japan. mostly areas along the sea of japan coast, because its sea-affect snow. we get heavy effect accumulations and we will see better conditions toward the end of the workweek, but another 24 hours of heavy snow to c and orange, up to 70 centimeters, half a meter of this western edge of northern japan. it will get worse before it gets better, and even then, we'll deal with warmer winds, some warmer temperatures coming in, that means we can have this very quick snow melt and that in turn can cause problems, certainly concern for avalanches to occur. we're looking at that danger in hokkaido from t
heavily in japan, but some of the white stuff is tapering off. rachel ferguson here with weather. looks like things easing up a bit in snow country. >> yes, indeed, they are and it's because we have a new system coming in and in front of it, some warmer winds coming up from the south. this is the system, first of all, before it reaches japan it will be bringing showers across central and northern china. now actually, there will be a stationary front developing here just across central china, to the north, beijing area, you will probably going to be seeing snow. not so much it will accumulate. ahead of this system, warmer winds will move across the peninsula and come in to japan, as well so that heavy snowfall we've been seeing is starting to taper off now but as there's just going to be a short break and then see the rain coming in but that's going to impact the snow melt. now at the moment, the snow depths are, well, as we have here, this is wednesday evening so the most recent figures. still seeing amounts of up to a meter, surpassing a meter in the sea of japan side of the country. t

ramsey rachel cruise. nice to see you this morning. >> good to see you too. >> so you have some tips that we can try to avoid breaking the bank because i think if you wait, you drag your feet, you kind of become rash and you end up spending too much. right? >> absolutely. yeah. the key here is to be intentional. so the best thing to do is to be on a budget this holiday season. so make a list of everyone that you are going to buy a gift for. and write a dollar amount next to their name and stick to that. so just be very very intentional. it's where your money is going. >> how do you stop mission creep though? because that happens in our family. we draw up the spreadsheet and say look we are doing one gift per family member. this is what we are doing this year. and suddenly it's two and it's three. how do you stop that from happening? >> yeah, it's a good question. you just have to be intentional again and stick to what the budget says you have to say no matter this is what we are doing. great thing to do is to use cash so you can actually cash out the amount of money that you plan to

rousseau, rachel davino and anne murphy. >> joining me now from newtown is mayor mark boughton of danbury, connecticut. thank you for being here. i understand you personally knew the principal there at sandy hook, dawn hochsprung. the principal who is being described as someone who sprang into action and was very safety-conscious at her short tenure at sandy hook. what other insights can you give us, the type of educator that dawn was? >> well, dawn and i worked in the same system back in the late '90ers for the city of danbury. we were in different buildings but our paths did cross from time to time. just an incredibly brave woman who really had a glow about her. she had a vivaciousness about her. she always put children first. it was very clear in any of her interactions that i saw her or was involved with her that kids were first. for that reason alone, it doesn't surprise me that she took the steps that she took on friday. >> i think for people out there wanting to learn more about dawn and the person she was could look at her twitter feed to find out how proud she was of the school t
. the labor party -- i was speaking to rachel reeves earlier on, just because they've got their plans wrong. they've cut in the wrong areas, they're not thinking about the infrastructure growth that this country needs to get itself out of the mess. so let's see what it comes up with today. it's just a question of whether he can take it away from some departments and give it to others. of course, there's this whole rich versus poor debate also. the poor we're talking about are only so rich. for instance, taking it away. the free amount of money you can put into your pension before you get taxed on it. at the moment, that's 50,000 pounds. estimates are that it will go down to 30, 40,000 pounds. even if they put it down to 30,000 pounds, it's only going to raise around 8.1 billion pounds extra. when you consider total government spending and borrowing, that's a drop in the ocean. welfare is about 186 billion pounds. you can see the kind of numbers we're talking about. tinkering at the edges as well. there will be more money into education, into science, into infrastructure as well and he'll be
of darden at a ten-month low after the restaurant operator cut its full year guidance. rachel rothman downgraded darden last month from positive to neutral with a $58 price target and joins us now on the cnbc newsline. thank you for joining us. i appreciate it. it's become a busy morning for you. >> thank you, simon. thank you for having us. >> what's gone wrong at darden? the ceo is saying we had promotions. they didn't resonate well. we need bolder changes at red lobster, olive garden and longhorn steakhouse. >> they spent the last couple years trying to repotool menus d change limited time offers in an effort to reengage with core customer and drive positive traffic. unfortunately the efforts that they unveiled to this point have yet to actually take hold and so they are issuing a disappointment here for the quarter and for the full year citing negative same store sales at their core brands. >> is that partly because of the delayed rolled out of olive garden changes or because they simply got it wrong? in october on the show we discussed taking a seafood restaurant, red lobster and
on sales? we're here to break down the mcrib effect. ladies, great to have you with us. rachel, i'll start off with you. what sort of impact could we see potentially in the month of december? i read in the past, in 2010 at least, one of these limited introduction offers that it actually boosted sales by almost 5%. >> i think it depends on what the lto is and what the prior year same-store comparison is. i wouldn't expect to see a positive number of the magnitude that you're discussing. actually, frankly, it will probably be something in the single digit negatives. but at least it's a tried-and-true product they know customers will come in for. >> nicole, if the mcrib is so loved, is that why it's always limited, a limited time offer? why don't they just put it on the menu? >> absolutely, it's one of the most anticipated product launches of the year. by to some degree it's tried and tested, but the best thing is to use what you know. they're going up against the most difficult comparison of the year at plus ten. we think a down low single digit would be good. if they could get the flat, it
